Persistently being questioned about her party MP Tapas Paul’s speech, TMC chief and West Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee Tuesday shot back at the media, asking if she should “kill him” as a punishment.

Mamata, however, described Paul’s speech as “derogatory” and a “big blunder”. “It is not just a mistake, it is a big blunder. We have taken steps that are needed to be taken. It is an individual utterance. What do you want? Should I kill him? What can I do?,” Mamata said. She said Paul has tendered an unconditional apology on her instruction.

“The party has already cautioned Paul. We condemn his statement,” she said, adding that the actor-MP’s speech was “derogatory”. “The party does not endorse it,” she added.

On the opposition Congress’s demand that Paul should be arrested and the CPM seeking his disqualification from the Lok Sabha, Mamata said, “The CPM, Congress and some others had in the past said so many things. The CPM had said so many things about me. I never saw you people (the media) protesting against them.”

    What was said in the past is not of any importance. Do Mamta have proof what they said in the past. Why at that time she has not not protested. Tapas is not in proper state of mind and is a fit case to be locked up in a Mental Asylum. Media is not asking you to kill him. By the way as a CM do you have a right to kill him ? Why this word killing is used frequently ?

    Didi, better care for other sisters in the state, this person as MP is untargeted missile, will burst wherever gets space. Also it is a breach of privilege of parliament to have a person as MP who lacks minimum intellectual standards. Do our respected parliamentarians have guts to throw this man out or just the party lines will keep coming ?
